I’ve long enjoyed hiking. I’m getting reacquainted with longer hikes now that I’m retired and have more time. I’ve been averaging hiking about 25 miles a week so long as the weather cooperates.
I regularly use the AllTrails app on my phone to suggest good nearby trails.
The App owners tallied the ratings on all of the trails in their system and listed the favorite trails by each state. Check out the article below.
All of the listed trails in my home state (Ohio) are more than a two-hour drive away from me. I haven’t hiked any of them. I wonder if there is a location bias. All of the Ohio trails are near a large population center (Cleveland/Akron). More people probably means more ratings.
I would guess that some of the remote trails in SE Ohio that get less traffic may even be better experiences than the listed trails.
